Iranian cleric says filtering the Internet is unIslamic

"An Iranian cleric is calling the country's heavy Internet filtering to be against Islam because it can block scientific or Islamic sites.

Mehdi Hadavi Tehrani said Tuesday on the opposition web site Kalame that the web filters can also block useful scientific and Islamic sites because words such as sex are flagged."

This cleric seems to think the a dictatorship is about religion. It's not. And he will learn that just as Karoubi is being taught.

Dictatorship is not about religion, it is about power, but often religion is used as a weapon of oppression.
